President Obama said Wednesday that while Republicans prepare to take control of the Senate, there are potential areas of bipartisan compromise that range from infrastructure to free trade.

Meanwhile, in a defiant challenge to GOP leaders, immigration hardliners in Congress announced plans Wednesday to oppose legislation to keep the government running past next week. They said they could not lend their support without specific provisions to stop President Obama’s executive actions that grant a reprieve from deportation for millions.
